Office for Northeast Asia (ONEA) and Global Education and Training Institute (GETI)

 

The UNDRR Office for Northeast Asia & Global Education and Training Institute (UNDRR ONEA & GETI) was established in 2010 to develop a new cadre of professionals in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation to build disaster resilient societies.

ONEA & GETI also hosts the Secretariat for the Making Cities Resilient Campaign.

The Global Education and Training Institute (GETI) has a global mandate to provide capacity building support to mainstream disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into sustainable development; convene and support inter-city learning to strengthen resilience (Making Cities Resilient); and to provide capacity building and best practice sharing support to national training institutions working on resilience issues.

      Making Cities Resilient

      banner

       

      Launched in May 2010, the global Making Cities Resilient: 'My City is getting ready!' campaign addresses issues of local governance and urban risk to help local governments reduce risk and build urban resilience.

      The MCR Campaign is led by UNDRR but is self-motivating, partnership and city-driven. UNDRR ONEA & GETI hosts the MCR Secretariat.

      Supporting proactive, local action towards sustainable urbanization, the MCR Campaign offers solutions and tools for local governments and actors to identify gaps in their resilience and to increase financial, technical and knowledge-based capacity for development planning and risk management. Joining the Campaign, cities become a part of a broad alliance of resilient cities worldwide.
